Product Description
Looking for an Orff lesson that is a digital resource and will work on all interactive boards, tablets and web browsers? Your elementary music students will love the engaging activities and the interactive slides included in the lesson plan, the PowerPoint or Web version of the visuals. You will love that you can use the song and the Orff arrangement for a performance piece on a program or concert!

The traditional folk song has been extended with an original B section making it a perfect piece for a musical experience or performance. The piece can be used to sing the entire form or enhance it by playing soprano recorders. Use the traditional A section to work on playing EGA on the recorder. The B section (with an original melody and lyrics) was written so students would have additional opportunities to read and play EGAC on the recorder and be immediately successful. It is a perfect addition to your Orff and Kodaly curriculum.

The set of Lesson Plans and interactive slides include:

• 9 lessons each 6-12 minutes (6 pdf pages) plus an Orff Orchestration. The lesson plans include detailed instructions for teaching the song, recorder, improvisational rain section, form and Orff Orchestration. Extensions and adaptions are also addressed.

• 24 visuals (with 21 slides being teacher and/or student interactive) may be used to reinforce recorder playing, melodic reading and aurally identifying melodic patterns. You will have everything you need to teach all the lessons.

It is a perfect piece to address curricular concepts while enjoying making music. It is also a great spiraling activity. Teach the song “Rain, Rain, Go Away” on the recorder with your first year recorder students and sing the B section for a performance piece. Teach the B section on the recorder, the second year. In addition, utilizing the optional descant with students that need an additional challenge will address playing high CDE on the recorder. The activities work well even if you do not use recorders, sing the entire piece and use the visuals for melodic work.

Feel free to check out the preview which is a sample of the PowerPoint version of the product. TpT has size restrictions on previews and I am unable to offer a preview of the Web Browser version of the product. If you would like to see it please email me at McPhersonsMusicRoom@gmail.com and I will be more than happy to accommodate you.
